Stage 2: Discuss it

¨ Analyse in terms of purpose, structure and language features

¨ Introduce the mnemonics PAT and IPEELL and link to the model text

¨ Introduce a writing organiser / planning frame

¨ Create a mark scheme from the features

¨ Discuss positive attitudes towards writing


Stage 3: Model it

¨ Model positive self-talk

¨ Model planning and writing using IPEELL and the mark scheme

¨ Score the model report using IPEELL

¨ Model goal-setting based on the scoring

¨ Score the cold task using the mark scheme

¨ Introduce graphing of scores

¨ Pupils graph their scores and set goals

¨ Pupils write a further piece and score it using the mark scheme


Stage 4: Memorise it

¨ Use different activities to help pupils memorise IPEELL
